I don't think you will see a great outflow of illegals. The majority of them are poor and have the basic education (5th grade). Their kids are either US citizens or have qualified for deferred action.

Turns out that the Social Security Administration has a document covering it quite well, does that provide more information than a second-hand account?...

You're basing your opinion on how many children you see of a certain ethnicity get off the school bus?...

Not only are they being bussed in, they have been driving across the border to attend our schools for years and possibly for decades. I'm sure they all get free breakfast and lunch as well. Is it any wonder that the sovereignty of this nation is tinkering on the brink of extinction?

Students walk in from Mexico to attend Texas schools

DEL RIO, Texas Students living in northern Mexico have skirted residency requirements to attend U.S. public schools for generations, but when the superintendent in one Texas border town got word that about 400 school-age children were crossing the international bridge each day with backpacks but no student visas, he figured he had to do something.

The community is connected by a bridge to Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, and like most border cities, the towns operate in tandem, with U.S. citizens and green cardholders living, working and shopping on both sides. All of it is legal, but public school attendance by children living in Mexico is another issue. We had several van loads (with Mexican license plates) pulling up at the schools and kids getting out. Its like Cmon, its obvious whats going on, said Kelt Cooper, superintendent of the San Felipe Del Rio Consolidated Independent School District.

One can only imagine what would happen if this scenario was being played out daily in reverse.

we could be deporting more illegals than those that sneak across the southern border. Phoenix is so bad
they should just fly the Mexican flag.

There are way too many states that are in the same condition. It's so out of control now that it's to the point that strict enforcement of immigration laws, cutting off all welfare and social services and abolition of the 14th amendment is our last hope at regaining sovereignty.

Uh; I live in Phoenix and def see less Spanish speaking people than a few years back. Look at many of the "Mexican" stores that closed up like many Food Citys.

MOST of the Spanish speakers left seem to be in Maryvale and few in places like Camelback.

Further down in the same article:

Quote:
...Immigration status isnt an issue in these cases. A decades-old Supreme Court ruling prevents school officials from even asking about citizenship. Regardless, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials, students who use the bridge enter the U.S. legally because they are U.S. citizens, permanent residents with green cards or Mexicans with student visas. Those visas are used by Mexican students who pay tuition, primarily at parochial schools.


What link does this have to a illegal immigration forum?...

Yes, that's the problem -- they're not going to go back to work hard for a living if they don't have to. One US born baby and they're bringing in more government handouts here than most jobs would provide for them there. Mexico doesn't have food stamps and free health care, WIC or Section 8.

I doubt many are going back.
